Timeless Regency Collection: Autumn Masquerade

Introducing a new line from A Timeless Romance Anthology!  The stories are all Regency.  It is called Timeless Regency Collection.  This is the first one and I look forward to many more.

Timeless Regency Collection: Autumn Masquerade by Josi S. Kilpack, Donna Hatch, and Nancy Campbell Allen

A MERRY DANCE by Josi S. Kilpack. When Lila overhears her uncle talking about a man coming to look for property in the county, she doesn’t think twice, until her uncle says he hopes Lila will find enough interest to marry the man. How can she marry someone named Mortimer Luthford, not to mention that his advanced age of thirty-three, and especially since she’s already in love with her absent cousin Neville? But when Mortimer arrives, Lila has to try every trick known to women to act not interested in the rather fascinating man, which proves a very difficult façade to maintain. 

UNMASKING THE DUKE by Donna Hatch. The last thing Hannah Palmer wants to do is flirt with men in a crowded ballroom, but when her sister throws a Masquerade Ball, Hannah can’t say no to the invitation and takes comfort behind a mask. She dances with a charming masked man, matching him wit for wit. When the glorious evening culminates in a kiss, and the two remove their masks, Hannah is horrified to discover the man she’s been flirting with all night is her most despised neighbor, the Duke of Suttenberg. No matter how charming the duke was at the ball, and how wonderful the kiss, he is the last man she’d ever accept.

WHAT’S IN A NAME by Nancy Campbell Allen. Penelope Timely has a terrible secret. She’s been writing letters to the Duke of Wilmington, pretending to be her ever-proper twin sister, Persephone. Now, the duke has written that he’ll be coming for the Autumn Masquerade Ball and Festival. Penelope will have to continue the charade while the duke is in town in order to protect her sister. The Duke of Wilmington isn’t fooled for a moment, but instead of confessing that he knows about the deception, he finds himself utterly charmed by Penelope and jumps into the game of deception to see how far the twin sisters will take it.

5 Stars, I love Regency!

Received ebook in exchange for an honest review

My Review:
Ahh, I love Regency Romance, especially when it is clean.  That is one of the reasons I love these Anthologies, they are clean, fun, and swoon-worthy.

Each of these stories takes place with an Autumn Masquerade.  This is so fun for this time of year.  The characters get to dress up, wear masks, and dance the night away.  All of this leads to miss information and some deception and of course, love.  I enjoy seeing how the authors play with this theme.  Each story has its own feel, but it is fun to have it all connected with the Autumn Masquerade.

Warnings: None

I would let my 17 year old read this book.
